The Andrews Forest Program includes a broad spectrum of outreach activities with many objectives and funding sources.


The Education program provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate classes to visit the forest for field courses, study tours and research experiences. Innovative K-12 programs give teachers the experience and skills to lead authentic research projects with their students, and middle school students the unique opportunity to study the forest on the ground and in the canopy.


The Andrews is recognized as a leader in developing research-management partnerships in which insights and information flow in both directions, projects are undertaken jointly to develop the scientific basis for addressing land management challenges, and broad communication of key findings is a priority.

Arts and Humanities

We recognize that science is but one way of knowing; we actively promote arts and humanities inquiry into the nature of our forests, streams and selves through our LTEReflections program.  Conservation and management policy and practice can be informed by science but cannot be formed without ethical reasoning; we are committed to bringing humanities tools and perspectives to our research as well as our outreach programs. 

Events and Meetings

Events and meetings like our field day, symposium, and monthly meetings create opportunities to share and discuss our research.
